I am going to re watch "The Draughtsman's Contract" made in 1982, starring Anthony Higgins, Janet Susman, and Anne Loise Lambert,........ Jacobean England....Beautifully filmed, costumes and sets,...The architecture is top shelve.....Developing story is slow, yet intriguing, and absurd at times....To like.... or not to like..It's a visual trip to the past....

I've got the Preservation Hall Jazz Band playing for me via iPod. Gotta get my Dixieland fix since I won't be Mardi Gras'ing any time soon!

Thanks for the reminder....I was so lucky to see members of PHJB back in the day....Remember seeing the Movie "The Big Easy" very enjoyable film.....But the music knocked me out....Cajun music still stirs my soul.....The Neville Brothers, Professor Longhair, Beausouleil , Buckwheat Zydeco and on and on.....

Seether - Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

my favorite Seether cd of all time, I love the drum beats in I think the tracks title is Jesus Christ or somthing like that.

I wonder if those living across the water might help me a bit since I've been unsuccessful thus far, you know the folk like up beat Irish music in PS I love you, Pride and Glory etc. how can I find that kind of music online to listen to it a bit and then buy the cd's if I like it, I love the beat and they just don't carry stuff like that around here that I know of if I ask they hand me Celtic Women.

I haven't seen those films Nona, so I could be totally barking up the wrong tree. They're not Irish, but have you come across Scottish band Capercaille?

Leyland might have an idea because she listens a lot to that genre of music?

Leyland does indeed have a few ideas for you, Nona. I like to listen to Celtic rock infused with blues, Latin and jam beats. I don't care for Irish Celtic/punk rock like Flogging Molly all that much most of the time.

If you want to view elizabeth's MySpace (link below), I have several Celtic bands on my favorites and then lots more if you browse all my friends. I treat MySpace like my desktop jukebox so that I can listen to all sorts of music at work.

Take a listen to Enter the Haggis, Scythian, Rathkeltair, The Clumsy Lovers, The Elders, Coyote Run, Greenwich Meantime, Barleyjuice, Clandestine, Gaelic Storm, Great Big Sea, Gael Warning, Icewagon FLU, Miranda Mulholland, Slide Show Baby, The Rogues, or Young Dubliners for a taste of what's out there. There are many bands like these making the festival and pub restaurant circuits.

You can't go wrong with the Bothy Band. With fiery instrumentals they pretty much set the standard for the genre called Celtic.

Christy Moore is an old favourite of mine. Don't care for some of his contemporary songs, but nobody can perform quite like him. Tipping it Up to Nancy and Patrick Was a Gentleman spring to mind.

Give Planxty a try, you are in for an experience. The black album, their first, is the best place to start.
